Beneficial ways in which students can spend their vacation

TOPIC OF THE MONTH: What are the beneficial ways in which students can spend their annual vacation?

Annual vacation is a great time to figure out what an individual is good at. One can spend their holidays reading good books as it would help build one’s personality, learning music or dance. And it’s not just about extracurricular activities, one can also join an abacus class to improve one’s mathematical ability or spend some quality time cooking as it has been proven to increase happiness. One can also spend time writing poems and articles. And last but not the least, and the most important, is to focus on physical health as ‘it is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver’. And finally, spending time with our loved ones is like a cherry on the cake!

Holidays are the best time to take a break from studies and pursue our hobbies, spend quality time with family, collect new information, improve our physical health, develop our skills, destress ourselves, become a volunteer, or take up a part-time job, keep ourselves fit, and plan for the next semester, analyse the previous year’s mistakes and overcome them with the best strategy for the next semester. This annual holiday, students can collect the best memories of their life. These are the best beneficial ways for any student to spend their annual vacation in their whole life.

During the annual vacation, we don’t have the burden of school exams and studies on them, so we can utilise it for a good purpose. We can spend our days performing art forms like painting, dance, music, and even learn a language. Reading a novel or a good book also widens our knowledge and is a great way to spend our time. We can even study some books of further classes. If possible, we can also go to tourist places as it helps us to refresh ourselves and explore the various places in our country. Since our mother serves us from dawn to dusk, we can help her in household chores. These are the days which give us a wonderful opportunity to perform the work we are interested in.

After a tiring schedule of exams, we get annual holidays which is a session break for students. But sadly, most students think that annual holidays are meant for enjoyment and leisure time without actually knowing their benefits and advantages. Students could spend their annual vacation in many beneficial ways. They could prepare themselves for the next session with the help of previous question papers available online and they could also brush up their skills further more for perfection which has been in a dearth due to excessive study hours. They can also enhance their life survival skills by attending adventure camps which can help them to get out of their comfort zone.

Annual breaks, for many students, mean relaxation, whether he is a pre-schooler, a middle schooler, a high schooler or a college student. Students can spend their time on hobbies and develop new skills. But for a high-schooler or an academically weak student or a college attendee, taking everything into consideration, it would be much better and beneficial if they spent their time studying. On the starting of the new session, it will prove helpful to them in understanding things thoroughly because their basic concepts and understanding will be strong. However, for the ones who will pursue their hobbies, they should work hard and excel in whatever they do.

Who doesn’t love vacations? Everyone does, especially children. When annual vacations come, parents want their children to have a vacation that is beneficial for everyone. There are many ways for a beneficial vacation — visits to historical places, temples, or even just staying at home and learning new skills, or trying some new skills outdoors such as skydiving, etc. In this way, children will be able to learn and experience things which can be beneficial in their future.

The annual vacation is a time for teenagers to get ready for the upcoming session, but most teenagers don’t know how to utilise their time in a beneficial way and end up wasting their precious time. To avoid this, the best way is to prepare a proper schedule. Students can pursue their hobbies such as drawing or reading books and give a couple of hours to study their school subjects. Studying is necessary during this period as children don’t bear their school’s burden and can easily acquire more information. Next, they should limit the use of mobiles and television as teenagers these days spend their time mostly on those. Further, they can add a period of regular exercising and socialising, so that they can be both physically and mentally fit.

All the schools have an annual vacation after the end of the session, and students get a lot of time to enjoy these days. Students can develop some hobbies, try different activities, spend time with their family members, interact with new people and enhance their skills within this time period. They can use every day to improve themselves in different fields. They should not waste their time on electronic devices but should do some physical activities to improve their health.

During our vacation, we can utilize our free time by doing that which we can’t do in our routine days. We can spend our leisure time accomplishing hobbies like classical music, dance, painting, creative writing, etc. We can lend our helping hands to our parents in their household chores which also help to improve our various skills. We can assist poor children in completing their home assignments or by tutoring those who can’t afford to go to tuition.
